I am looking for a media website. In a nutshell, this application will be a place where user will have a chance to come and navigate through many pictures and enjoy many videos. They will be able to provide their comments and leave feedback. I intend to have many user to be on the application so the Design and Simplicity of use are very important to me.
The user will have the ability to select the categories that he/she will like to view
The User will also what the ability to chose the particular location that he/she would like to view (this can be set prior to start or at any time he/she will desire) We will discuss this feature in depth.
The user have to have a user friendly interface allowing he/she to enjoy the site without thinking
The user will be able to post comment on any media type (pic or video) that he/she desires
The user should be able to share the media with the other social media
The application should be design to allow flexibility and future modification
Open source is preferred (RoR, php, python, mysql ...)
I am my webmasters should be given the ability to have full control of the site. Uploading all the media controlling comments and all.
I want to give the ability to upload picture but their upload can not directly goes live. It will have to go through the administrators for approval.
Given that we are dealing with Media it is extremely important to design this application with the management of all the uploads and usability in mind. I am welcoming everybody to postulate however I prefer some body that has a lot of experience in this area please. I will be relying on that person's expertise to decide on a lot of things (hosting, servers quality, and more)
That is the basic idea. Many of the features will be discussed with the successful candidate.
